  1. Corning's own Rockwell Museum is taking the country by storm in their rendition of a staff video for the When You Work At A Museum project. Last week, they actually beat the Smithsonian in Round 1- today is round 2 which can take them to the finals- all votes must be cast by 8am Friday- you can vote as many times as you want- it only takes 5 seconds (literally, no clickbait) Given their name, I think it is awesome that they chose the song "I always feel like somebody's watching me" by Rockwell and Michael Jackson. #VOTEROCKWELL (sorry Mark) Vote here: http://www.whenyouworkatamuseum.com/post/173543003952/museum-dance-off-5-eastern-final More about the contest- http://www.whenyouworkatamuseum.com/
  2. Cost Of Amazon Prime To Go Up

    I love Amazon Prime. Definitely worth it. (notice proper spelling of definitely). I did almost 80% of my Christmas shopping through Prime last year.
  3. This is a great breakdown - appreciate your efforts.
  4. I remember the pitch that the paper bags were worse for the environment- I almost fell out of my place in line!
  5. Heights Man Arrested For Fraud

    If you needed it that bad, sure.
  6. Bannerman's Castle on the Hudson

    Pretty much. mwuah.
  7. Heights Man Arrested For Fraud

    He has been running this scam for years, and been in and out of trouble for even longer. IT takes a lot of balls to even go do this in the first place, but then to openly admit who you are while doing it, just takes the cake. You would think he would leave town, and play the game somewhere where he doesn't know anyone. The social media fury stating all of the people who have witnessed this, was just astounding. I feel bad for his family, as they are not anything like this, in fact, the polar opposite. I have often given money to people, and in my heart I hope they are using it for good, although I am sure they often aren't. If they choose to misuse it, that's their karma.
  8. There's a running joke in my house about having giant bags of bags. I have a ton of tote bags, yet I always seem to forget to bring them to the store. I do use the plastic bags for bathroom trash cans, and other things. If we can move forward with a more responsible way, I am all for it. Although, I will be honest, this means that in the meantime, I may continue to hoard the plastic while I can. LOL
  9. Perhaps a little bit of both.
  10. Elmira Downtown Cleanup

    I'm going!
  11. Interesting - I hope they check that out as well. The answer to this would be much more telling, don't you think? I feel that the cleanup over the past summer was very hush hush. The entire section was fenced/hidden from view, and I don't know if they even said what they were doing. I have a distant relative that lives in that neighborhood, and they had no clue what was happening. You're right Chris, what would we do if they closed the school? I don't have the answer for that. Yet if there is a correlation, something must be done. I'm not into lawsuits, that doesn't solve anything. Yet having our students in a safe learning environment is important. What I find interesting are the types of cancers that have been associated with former students, particularly testicular cancer, many attributed to athletes. I would rather see a witch hunt than it be ignored.
  12. Bannerman's Castle on the Hudson

    Yes, they truly are. Just being in the countryside, and along the way, in the middle of nowhere, stand castle ruins from ages ago. I found Edinburgh to be the most fascinating, they even had a cemetery for soldier's dogs Irish castles were equally beautiful, although I was somewhat grossed out at the Blarney castle after a local told me they all come over at night and pee on the spot where tourists kiss the rock. LOL
  13. Bannerman's Castle on the Hudson

    I traveled through some legit Scottish castles in Scotland (Edinburgh, Loch Ness) and they are just stunning, particularly when you consider how long they have been standing!
